Scenic Luxury Cruises Present National Award to TravelManagers for Fifth Year Running
Scenic’s annual ‘Night of Stars’ awards were held on Saturday (3 February) in a glittering black-tie event that was hosted in Sydney’s Ivy Ballroom in Sydney and recognised the achievements of Scenic’s top performing travel agencies and consultants in Australia and New Zealand. For the fifth consecutive year, the award for top performing home-based agency network was awarded to TravelManagers.
TravelManagers’ Executive General Manager, Michael Gazal, says the award serves to further cement its position as Australia’s premium travel network, and cites the commitment of its 550-plus personal travel managers (PTMs) to delivering personal and consistent service as being key to its ongoing success.
“We are thrilled to see our personal travel managers being recognised for their outstanding dedication to sales and commitment to excellence in servicing their clients’ needs.”
Gazal goes on to emphasise the importance of strong and effective supplier relationships in the company’s consecutive wins.
“Our PTMs are excellent advocates of our partner suppliers’ products, so it’s particularly pleasing to have that dedication recognised and our network’s significant contribution toward Scenic Luxury Cruises & Tours’ total sales rewarded.”
Travel Managers operates in all Australian States and is a wholly owned subsidiary of House of Travel, Australasia’s largest independent travel company which has a forecast turnover of $1.8 billion for 2017. TravelManagers is a sister company to Hoot Holidays, also owned by House of Travel, and has more than 550 personal travel managers throughout Australia with a dedicated support team at the company’s national partnership office in Sydney. TravelManagers places all customer money in a dedicated and audited Client Trust Account which is separate from the general business accounts, ensuring client funds are secure and only used for client purchases.
